I can answer your question for you. Running 5 instances of WoW from one desktop is a sign and symptom of the following:

Autism is a brain disorder that is associated with a range of developmental problems, mainly in communication and social interaction. The first signs of this disorder typically appear before age 3. Although treatment has improved greatly in the past few decades, autism cannot be cured. It persists throughout life.

It's estimated that three to six of every 1,000 children have autism. A recent increase in the number of autism cases in the United States may be the result of improved diagnosis and changes in diagnostic criteria.

The disorder occurs three to four times more often in boys than in girls. The severity of symptoms is variable. Some children with autism will grow up able to live independently, while others may always need supportive living and working environments.

The cause of autism isn't clear, and there's no cure. But intensive, early treatment can make a difference.

You're not gonna build a computer like that for under 2000 let alone 1000. Get real. 5 instances of WoW... A. Get a life.... and B. I'm not sure a computer could even do that under 3000.

thats easy!!

WoW requires like a 800mhz CPU, so a good Core 2 Duo could do it, a Core 2 Quad would do it maxed.....

but what is the use of running it 5 times? Is it for Ultimate Overclock Stress Testing?

I thought you could only run one copy at a time?

Anyway you should try and get a quad core and 2 gigs of ram for that amount of multi tasking. Go value on everything else.

Also i think what your describing is called "botting" and is in violation of blizzard Terms of agreement.
